From our many years of experience, we know that every PDM project is individual, as are our customers. That's why we deliver tailor-made solutions to meet your challenges.

Throughout the entire product life cycle, information is generated that you must relate to your design data. This is why our system focuses not only on the integration of your CAD systems, but also on their logical relationship to designs, development history, machine programs, print management, order and project data, master data, parts lists, to name but a few. The list can be continued at will.

Core processes such as change management, release processes or the administration of standard components play a central role in every company - only often in different forms. PDM beginners in particular would like a PDM system to not only provide them with an electronic management system, but also with instructions on how these processes can be implemented profitably for the company. Take advantage of our experience and work with us to develop the right strategy.

How does Phoenix/PDM meet this demand from individual requirements and different variants of core processes?

Our Phoenix/PDM software is divided into three different areas. From these possibilities we put together the suitable configuration for you.

The core software, which contains various configurable options for each module.

Configurable options can be understood as switches that can be used to switch between different settings available in the core software. This ranges from simple variants, such as selection options for individual data fields, to versioning strategies of varying complexity.

Each customer receives all these variants and can change the settings if required. These options often result from practical experience with our customers, which we then make available to all users in a general form.

Different software modules.
